    Does anyone have any info about this cartridge.

    It was part of an exchange deal however I think it is quite a rare cartridge.

    I found this:

    The cartridge was designed by Haruo Takeda. He also designed the Mark Levinson, and the 2 Miyabi cartridges. It has an output of .35mv, tracks at 1.7g, and requires 100 - 200 ohms.

    I had already written my auction description and by sheer chance the text was almost the same

    I think someone asked a similar question on vinylengine some time ago.

    I'll ask my girlfriend if she will perform for him.

    leather/pvc, bandages , and an element of S&M appear to do the trick

    gotta love his avatars

    i'll be intrigued to see what the cart goes for.

    Have you tried the cart?
    Do you know how many hours use it has had?

    I am sure this was a late 80s design and quite old so am a little wary about its life expectancy and servicability. Though I am not sure when Krell ceased having them produced?

    It is a desirable item though.
    I may have a look for the original review.

    Hi Steve

    The cartridge came with the Oracle Delphi mk V I currently have on auction. It was part of an exchange deal for my Thorens Prestige.

    The trade was done with a well known Paris audio dealer. Many dealers buy from me in this manner and it is the 5th time we have done business.

    I just spoke to him and I reckon Krell has around 150hrs...which in vinyl terms is very low. He actually quoted less (~100) but I said it was better to quote higher to be sure! So in real terms this is more like a NOS cartridge.

    I still run some fantastic vintage cartridges, the best still being the Accuphase AC-2. The compliance and suspension is fine after 25 yrs!

    The Krell is attracting a fair bit of interest it seems. I'm going to set it up on the Technics / SME tomorrow.

    Regards

    Ritchie

    Thankyou Ritchie,

    Wonder how it would perform with a Gyro SE/QC/SME IV

    Will you be taking any pics of it on the Technics/SME?

    steve - yep,gota cheap one off ebayabout 9 months ago but it's taken me this long to sort a plinth. i'll write athread with some pics once it's had a service and a facelift (due to top plate corrosion). mechanically sound however.

    right, back to the Krell cart
